    Such flowing lines ... superb hull-form
    aye unlike some of the steel monstrosities you get now

    You bet!
    S'funny thing, the Japanese have never moved away from easy-lined, seakindly hulls. nor broadly have the Spanish
    And you can pretty much bet your bottom dollar that the carbon footprint of the average current generation lump is will be, shall I say, "embarassing"!
    Is this the old Lossiemouth Olympic INS.16 then UL.16 Tommy Gaults boat?

    You are right Bobby She was built 1957 at Jones Buckie for Tommy Gault Lossiemouth and named Olympic UL 16  Her registration was changed to INS 16  after Tommy sold her and built the Colinne UL160
    She was later sold to owners from Aryshire I think and renamed Andrew LH 303
